So when driving along you come across a car/4X4 in trouble and they ask for you to help them. While recovering them you cause more damage to there car eg. strap breaks, damaged there car caused by winch breaking, bent panels, car falls further down hill ect. As a tow company they would have the correct insurances to cover these sort of things. Also if its there car or a hire car does that change anything? Can the hire company take action against you for any damages to there car? Can they sue you or take legal action against you? This hasn’t happened to me but was just thinking about it after helping someone at the snow after they went over the cliff and helping a 4X4 Jeep last weekend that was like a submarine, both cars were hire cars.
